Whether you are new to colorwork or have knitted a simple accessory with colorwork and are ready for more, this class will help you get started with some fundamental understandings and techniques. We will start with some basics, such as reading charts and choosing patterns. We will then cover other factors that go into the making of a successful knit, such as color choice, color dominance, even tension, and managing long floats, and we will work with all these elements in the class.
